The John Wayne Story - The Early Years
Follow the Duke from the Sagebrush Trail to the Sands of Iwo Jima in this documentary full of blazing sixshooters, interviews, and other highlights, with rare photos and scenes from more than forty movies. Born Marion Morrison in a small town outside Des Moines, Iowa, on May 26, 1907, Wayne embodied the larger-than-life, patriotic heroes of American legend onscreen for fifty years, from 1927 to 1976. His long association with John Ford paid off when "Pappy" directed his breakthrough hit, Stagecoach, after the Duke had spent a decade laboring in the Hollywood vineyards of "B" Westerns and serials. A string of successes followed: Reap the Wild Wind, Flying Tigers, Fort Apache, Red River, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Rio Grande, The Quiet Man, and his Oscar-nominated rose as Sergeant Stryker.
